The difference between a coach and therapist is that a coach works with you in order to help you clarify goals and identify obstacles and problematic behaviors in order to create action plans to achieve desired results. The process of coaching starts you where you are and is focused on moving you forward from that point.  Coaches help you work on your goals for the future and create a new path to a rich, meaningful and happy life.  While the emphasis is on behaviors and goal achievement, as you achieve your goals and improve your health and wellness behaviors, you will naturally become happier, more content and satisfied in your relationships.

Counseling Services

I am licensed in Florida (LMHC #6261) and Tennessee (LPC-MHSP #3001) and can provide “counseling” services to members in those states through secure video conferencing.  My goal is to help you understand why you might be doing what you are doing and help you identify strategies to live a happy, healthy life. I use a brief, solution focused, cognitive approach and specialize in addiction, anxiety, depression, PTSD, grief and food issues.  To learn more, please visit my YouTube channel.

Saturday “Busters” Intensive Coaching Workshops

Cost: $180 for Non-Members.

Sign up  Currently Unavailable  Email if you want to be notified of the 2020 schedule.

These intensive coaching workshops are designed to provide you with knowledge about what causes the particular issue and things that may help make it better, and the skills to identify and tailor tools to work for you.  Kind of like an interactive self-help book.  I will not be diagnosing or treating any issues, but instead helping you identify what happiness looks like to you, what thoughts and behaviors might be keeping you stuck and what tools and strategies will help you move forward.

You can join from the comfort of your own home!  When you register, you will receive an email with the link to the meeting room.  You will be able to see the presentation and interact with the instructor the whole time.  There will be occasional breaks for you to do activities, so have a notebook and pencil handy.

  • Depression and Anxiety Busters
  • Anger and Resentment Busters
  • Stress and Anxiety Busters
  • Addiction Busters
  • Emotional Eating Busters
  • Toxic Relationship Busters

Each session is structured as follows:

  • 10am-Noon EST: Identification of the problem and skill development
  • 1pm-3pm EST: Application of the new skills
  • Texting with Dr. Snipes for up to 30 days from 3pm-8pm EST to help you implement the new skills  (some limitations apply)


  • Note: These services are not appropriate for a crisis situation or if you are feeling suicidal or homicidal.  In those cases, contact your local crisis hotline, go to the nearest emergency room or contact local law enforcement.

  • *Coaching services do not involve the diagnosis or treatment of a mental health disorder.  Instead, you have identified what your presenting issue is and have an idea about how you want to address it, but need some assistance implementing YOUR plan and staying motivated.

  • **Counseling services can only be provided by a therapist who is licensed in the state in which the patient resides, and in the state in which he or she resides if they are different.
